Hot Press Applications SMC – BMC

PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES FOR COMPOSITES

Hot Press Applications – SMC – BMC

Different formulations can be produced In hot press application methods under pressure. It is preferred for parts to be produced in high quantity.

SMC production method provides higher stiffness and durability specifications than BMC methods under favour of longer fiber materials.

SMC and BMC hot press production methods provides thermal and chemical resistant with high surface quality composite materials



Key advantages;

  • Fast cure times and short takt times
  • Single step molding process
  • Highly automatable



PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES FOR COMPOSITES

SMC – Sheet Moulding Compound

SMC is a pestile shaped material formed by combining chopped glass fiber as reinforcement material and a resin containing filling material in the SMC machine.

SMC production has an impressive performance in the automotive industry with the advantages of faster, efficient design and mass production.

SMC proves that can be used in many ways due to its superior performance in products exposed to a chemical environment.

Mold temperature is between 120-170 ° C. SMC can be named as both process and reinforced composite material. The longer fiber materials in SMC provide higher stiffness and durability properties than BMC.

Examples of SMC applications ;

  • washing machines
  • air conditioners
  • refrigerators
  • frying machines
  • computers
  • office equipment


Key advantages;

  • Cost / performance advantage over metal materials
  • Many parts can be combined in a single mold.
  • SMC products are lightweight and have high stiffness and strength properties.





PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES FOR COMPOSITES

BMC – Bulk Moulding Compound

BMC is a material ready to be molded in, form of pulp formed by pre-combining a resin containing fiber reinforcement chopped glass fiber etc. and filling material.

BMCs are opposition with metal castings and engineering thermoplastics.

Main application areas;

  • Large or small sized home appliances
  • automobile headlights
  • circuit breakers
  • gearboxes and brush stems
  • pump housings
  • electrical applications


Key advantages;

  •  Provides superior stiffness, flame resistance and corrosion resistance with the addition of high rate of filler usage.
  • Products with sensitive dimensional tolerances can be molded, metal parts can be embedded in the product.
  • Injection molding provides possibility to use secondary reinforcement materials.
